My “Pebbles” collars are finished and…

I couldn’t be more pleased with these!  I love the colors, shapes, patterns, and textures of the beads and I especially like the addition of the bronze metal clay beads.  I think the polymer and bronze play well off each other and the hammered bronze neck ring is the perfect accompaniment.  The collars are comfortable to wear because they are not too heavy.  Polymer clay is rather light in weight and the bronze beads give just enough substance.  I have a few leftover beads from this collection and I think I’ll make a fibula or two with those or perhaps feature a single large bead on a chain along with a hammered bronze charm.  I’m on a roll now and can’t wait to make more beads!

  2. Thanks, Jen! I wanted the collars to look as if they had been unearthed in an archeological dig, Watching all those Mummy movies from the 1940’s has certainly influenced my work!


  3. They’re great. They would be wonderful in a fibula.
